New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must decide how to respond to AB 4237 by September 9. This is the bill that moves this year’s general election for state office from November 5 to October 16. The bill passed in June. If the Governor signs the bill, the state will save $12,000,000 in election administration costs. Without the bill, the state holds a special general election for U.S. Senate on October 16 and then a regular general election for state office (Governor and legislature) on November 5.
